Thanks to an invitation from Otakam, presentation partner of the Arkea – Samsic team (but I’ll tell you more about that in a few weeks), I was able to follow the rider Matîs Louvel on the last lap of the Tour de France, between Lacapelle – Marival and Rocamadour.
A time of 40 kilometers which is not easy with grainy roads and long false flats and above all two beautiful bumps. A great opportunity for me to take pictures that are a little different than what I usually do, during the warm-up, but also during the race.
At the same time, a video that will make you experience the chrono from the inside, with the advice of Arnaud Gérard as sports director.
Unlike many articles, I won’t write much. I’ll leave you to enjoy this photo gallery… and below you’ll find the video. Thanks to Jérôme and Gaëtan from Otakam and the whole Arkea-Samsic team for the welcome!
This video was taken on the phone, from the back of the car. Sorry if things move a lot, but the main thing is there, you can hear the instructions of Arnaud Gérard, who, like a rally navigator, reread these notes of Matisse Louvel, pointing out the dangers and bumps. All of this is fed into the Veloviewer app tablet, allowing for a precise view.
